I love Jefferson-Edison an so does my son. He has been their from Kindergarten and is now in 4th and has had a wonderful experience. The staff is always so supportive. The environment has a warn feeling that makes kids feel safe and loved. I would never send my kids to anywhere else.

I have always been pleased with this school. My children have attended schools in other cities and have not gained anything or fell behind. Since returning to Jefferson, they have greatly improved skills in all areas.
